Looking for a great pasta recipe with either cream sauce or tomato-cream. Please help :)
I'm looking for a good pasta recipe with either tomato-cream sauce or cream sauce.
Don't want anything overly complicated.
Would appreciate any links or any recipes anyone could post.

Father Leo Patalinghug of "Grace Before Meals"--PBS show and cookbook of the same name, has an easy recipe for "Penne al a Vodka." (I got to taste test it when he made it live on the air. :-) You can see a video of him making it here: http://www.gracebeforemeals.com/video... or you can probably see the book online and view the recipe. Very good recipe--easy but sophisticated.
I have several dishes that use a tomato/ white wine cream sauce. These are not difficult to make just a little mixing of sauces at the end. Some are with spinach and chicken,mushrooms, and some with shrimp. There is one crab ravioli, with a tomato cream sauce that I've made which is excellent, but get ready to work.
I would use a pasta that catches the sauce for this one, I am really fond of gemelli, or orrechiette. These types of pasta are designed to catch and hold the sauce nicely.
re: chef chicklet
The link is for a recipe called "baked-pasta-with-tomato-cream-and-five-cheeses." This is a great recipe which I had the pleasure of eating at the restaurant that made it famous, Al Forno in Providence, RI.
You cannot go wrong with it. I also have subbed out the sauce with Rao's Marinara when I was in a hurry and it still was stellar. Enjoy!
Staceyy: Below is a link to a roasted red pepper cream sauce. I have made this and it was really, really good. You can season to taste (I added a little Smoky Sweet Pepper. But - Yum! I hope you give it a try. - I personally did a little cajun seasoning on the chicken to give it some extra kick: http://www.bigoven.com/170103-Roasted...
